Significant that this was the first show Ned Lagin had sat in with the band since August of '71. He's playing on the Dark Star>Brokedown Palace. Perhaps that's why this DS is so epic...

Take this Dark Star to the bank.

not one of the best versions of '72 imo (for that, check out 4/8, 4/24 and 9/21) but the ending jam transitioning in brokedown makes this worth the listen alone...unlike what one of the other reviewers said i think this version has plenty of Space (not a bad thing necessarily) after which things really start to get cohesive.

Not a Great Night for Phil
Jerry is all over this show, Dark Star is Prime Jerry ripping killer leads in a multi-dimensional fashion as usual for 1972. The major bummer here is Phil took the night off. Looking for killer bass playing, looks else where frankly Phil is real dull on this show surprising considering the year.

An Utterly Sublime Dark Star
Pre-verse this Dark Star starts out mellow and jazzy and includes some quite enjoyable jams, but the real story is the post-verse portion. Instead of dissolving into unnecessary space, they quickly bounce around some musical ideas and decide to launch into a ferocious Tiger with Keith playing some fantastic keys. After the Tiger, a heavenly jam with some very tight and focused playing ensues. Magically, as if in a dream, this jam is transported into a sweet and heartfelt Brokedown Palace, thus ending one of the all time Dark Stars that the band played. The Playin' and Dew are great, but not on equal footing with the Dark Star-> Brokedown Palace sequence.

This one is great, "typical" for Sept. 72, but the vocals are a little loud compared to the music.

DO NOT PASS THIS ONE UP. BEFORE YOU DOWNLOAD ANY OF IT, DOWNLOAD THE DARK STAR. IT DWARFS ANY PIECE OF MUSIC YOU WILL EVER HEAR. THEY HAVE NEVER PLAYED ANYTHING LIKE THIS. THIS IS A VERY DEEP, DARK PIECE OF MUSIC. LISTEN TO IT, OVER AND OVER AGAIN AND I PROMISE, IT WILL NEVER GET OLD.

Short but Sweet, pt.2
This along with the 30min from the night before are well worth the download. I know these aren't complete shows but the sdbd recordings as well as the jams are great. This recording starts with a smoking Playin'.....great wah-wah by Jerry. After a decent Morning Dew and Greatest, a Dark Star emerges complete with jazzy overtones. This particular Star has very little space and plenty of jamming that spans 26min. If you're not into spacy meltdowns, then you may want to skip this. All memebers are fully engaged into some serious jamming. Combine this with the 15th sdbd for a great 2cd set!
